    James Capello in at QB

    Is this a good thing? He gets the nod over Tiller?

    Tiller may be nursing an injury still. Otherwise, might as well see what James can do.

    sounds like Capello has been really impressing - could be a good competition for starter next year.....er, or maybe next week.

    was impressed with Tiller's fakes in previous games. Capellos does a nice job also!

    Re: James Capello in at QB

    He was pretty much flawless, too bad we didn't get to see him throw.

    This blowout loss was primarily on the defense and special teams, although obviously we couldn't pass well either. If the defense kept us closer we could have kept working our ground game.

    I don't think we have a QB controversy this year, but I would like to see Capello get more snaps. Tiller did not play well against UNI, I say whoever has the best practice week should be #2 week to week.

    FWIW, which probably isn't much, Tiller was 50% on making the right read on the read option when he started which isn't very good at all.

    Tiller was also injured which I think is likely the reason Capello is in, however, I think there will be a good competition for the QB spot.

    the defense lost the game but it started with offense not getting it done on like 4 straight possessions if not more.

    Re: James Capello in at QB

    Capello only played because Tiller is injured. I wish I could share more information on that but I'm pretty sure the coaching staff doesn't want it out there. On a side note, Capello looked good for the limited time he was in there.

    Yes, it is of the highest priority that we not let the opponent know that our not very good 2nd string QB is hurt. They'll never figure that out since he didn't play in this game.
